Hi Cin,


We have a section on Causes of Scleroderma: Radiation.


I'm not sure what you are exposed to in working as an x-ray technologist. Are you sure your center follows all the guidelines issued by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission? Are you given warnings or education as to possible occupational exposure?

Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.
